Tricycle U/D Carriage Q2

ARTHUR BOYD <warreen@...>
 

Guys/ How many Tricycle under carriage Q's do we have, I haven't seen
any referance to any of these aircraft, as I am looking at doing this to
my Q kit because of grass strips maybe some one who has a converision
could talk to me. I am just a leaner no glass work yet to cold, but the
warm weather is getting closer. Arthur Boyd

Arthur I cut my Q-200 apart and made it a Tri-Q. Now has about 800 hrs on
it. Flys and lands great but I have not had it into any grass strips. The
conversion is no big deal. I have done it on two aircraft so far. Just follow
Scott Swings instructions and you will be fine. Greg Z N89RZ


Re: Tricycle U/D Carriage Q2

Cash, Gene <CASH@...>
 

Hi Arthur,
I installed the Tricycle gear in my Q-200. I haven't flown it yet but I
could probably answer your questions on installation. There are a number of
Tri-Q's around.

How can we help? Earnest Martin and I both have Tri-Q's in same hangar.
His is a Q200, mine a Revmaster. Between the two we probably have
experienced whatever you are facing.

GPS is a great emergency aid and extremely useful for determining the performance of your aircraft.  No plane should fly without one.
 
Second note, the Q is a terrible instrument platform!

    At this point I am a flying "none" when it comes to GPS, ain't got none, don't want none, ain't lookin fer none. Maybe when I finish my instrument ticket I'll change my mind, but I only intend to fly VFR in my Q.
    Except in IFR flight (and even then to some extent), navaids (of which GPS is one) are just that, aids. If you are looking at a map and have picked good checkpoints and are following them, you know where you are, even if your GPS can't P its S with the G!  Mike C.

I used to have great faith in GPS until a couple of weeks ago. My GPS (Magellan 3000XL) fell over twice during a seven hour cross country flight, once when I least needed it. Fortunately I had not been relying on it solely to get me to my destination (somewhere that I had never been before) as I still had the good old magnetic compass heading to go by. I don't know whether it was my GPS or the system that failed but I will be very weary of them both from now on. Improvement? Well, I haven't noticed much.

Re: IFR

BD5ER@...
 

Rest assured that I do not intend to push the envelop too far. It would
just be nice to be able have the "back up" of basic IFR in case of things
like dense ground fog which is common on some parts of my future course in
the early morning hours. I can always turn back but flying would cut my
travel time to almost a quarter. (40 min by air - 2 hours 15 min by
Interstate, and that's at 80) This would give me the option of coming "home"
at night rather than staying in an apartment during the week or driving 4
hours a day.
I drove this much every day on my last job. Too bad there are no good
jobs in my home town.

Re: IFR

Leon,

I've only had my hand on the control stick of a Q200 twice, but I think if
you have some good, hard, helicopter IFR time you might not have any problem.
I've got a bit of that time in an ol' Huey and I'd compare the work load as
about the same. I think the Army gave us 1.8 hrs of duty time for every hr
flown IFR. It's a very intense environment. Zero tolerance for lapses of
concentration.

Just MHO,

Re: W&B questions

HawkiDoug@...
 

My flight adviser & I were reviewing my W&B numbers and we are confused. The
graph that Quickie had in their ops manual has two lines going from lower
left to upper right. They call this the Operating CG Envelope. Why the two
lines? When we compared this graph to another from a RV6 or Cessna, there is
only one line. The reason we ask is as I take weight out of my Q2 (LS1
canard), the CG moves forward but to the right of the right line. I would
have to but alot of weight up front to get it within the envelope. I have a
24 lb battery at an arm of 114 but even if I move it to the bagage area I'm
still right of the CG envelope. Even if I put in a 6 lb. battery it doesn't
work. CG continues to move forward but not far enough. Things get better
when I put a passenger in. What gives with the two lines? My bird has flown
with a 14 lb. lighter RevMaster engine at 1100lb. gross (so the log book
says). Is my bird save to fly????

Thanks!
